It Has to Start Sometime

New beginnings are always a great time! I am constantly in awe of the resoluteness one needs for the closing of the door behind to walk slowly but assuredly away from one’s comfort. And then how soon it can be followed by the exhilaration and anticipation of new worlds to be found in the opening of the doors ahead.

This is where I find myself. Wanting… Maybe even needing… to enter a new unexplored world. Yet I still enjoy and find fulfillment and rest in the world in which I presently reside.

Living simultaneously in two worlds… It can’t last forever… But while it does, I will enjoy the ride.

A MEDICAL ANOMALY

A MEDICAL ANOMALY



With boys, everything is a competition.

The oldest one just went to the phlebotomist at the local clinic to give blood.

This has become a monthly task for the set of them.

“How long does this usually take?” Howard asked inquisitively. “Is there a record for giving a unit of blood?”

The nurses looked at each other and winked. They knew a sucker when they saw one. “Under five minutes per unit is a good time,” the older one stated.

“Under four minutes would record-breaking for me,” chimed in the younger.

“Do you have a squeeze ball?” inquired Howard. “I’ll shoot for three minutes and something.”

The needle was inserted…

The timer was started…

Long story short- in three minutes and thirty-one seconds, the unit was tagged and shelved.

Howard was a winner again.

CURIOUS COMPANIONS

CURIOUS COMPANIONS



I have finally had a day in the garden… By day, I mean three ten minute excursions. By garden, I meant pulling weeds and trimming unwanted brush.

Having completed my first class in gardening, the most important thing I learned was that plants have friendships.

  • Tomatoes like basil, carrots and marigolds. Chive is a friend, as well.
  • Peppers like onions.
  • Cucumbers like radishes, rosemary, and marigolds. They also like peas.
  • Strawberries like lettuce, marigolds, and onions.
  • Blackberries like hyssop.

I hope to endeavor to companion plant this year,

That way, as I enjoy the beautiful sunsets on my patio, I will know that my future harvest is feeling the love as well.

THE CHOSEN ONES

THE CHOSEN ONES



This year’s garden contains only a few plants.

I am going to try my hand at strawberries in patio containers on the banisters of the deck … A few gardeners in my class thought positive thoughts about the effort.

In my larger patio containers I hope for tomatoes and peppers.

I have been studying the companion planting of my future harvest, so I will probably plant some friendship plantings.

I think I will try a blackberry plant on the side of the patio.

Those are my chosen plants for this year.

SHARE YOUR WORLD: 5-13-2019



  • What social stigma does society need to get over already?
  • What was the last photo you took?
  • When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?
  • What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?


What social stigma does society need to get over already?

I wish that political parties would chose to listen to each other instead of seeing opponents as evil and need to be ostracized from society.

I know that many of the worst are supposedly on the fringes of the parties, but if the center of the party does not take a stand against stupidity… the end may not be pretty.

What was the last photo you took?

I took some great pictures of the local arboretum.

When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?

Nope … I don’t snoop.

Nope … Not going there.

You pick the answer you like.

What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?

I am like the old-fashioned doll that closes its eyes as soon as its head is tilted back. Sleep is wonderful.
